Today's Teens Are Tomorrow's Jewish Philanthropists

Today's Teens Are Tomorrow's Jewish Philanthropists

The Jewish Teen Foundation (JTF) launches its seventh cohort starting in the fall semester. We would love your help recruiting high schoolers for this amazing, and fully Covid-flexible, growth opportunity for students. With so much rapid change, this important program ensures that we continue to educate future leaders to have a positive impact on the world around them.

JTF is a leadership development program of the Jewish Community Foundation that teaches Jewish high school students about philanthropy, Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Tzedakah (charity) through a foundation lens. Teens will learn grant making, collaboration, public speaking, and constructive discourse skills while building their own personal networks.

Please share with your friends, children, grandchildren, etc. The program is open to Jewish 9th-12th graders in San Diego County and will meet twice a month during the academic year. The program will be fully flexible for the public health situation, but will mix in-person meetings (to the extent possible) and virtual gatherings. JTF is 
now accepting applications online.

Four Reasons for High School Students to Apply
for the 2020-2021 Program:

Learn New Skills
During this 2020-2021 school year program, participants will learn how to collaborate, have constructive discourse, evaluate grants like a pro, have public speaking opportunities, and develop leadership skills that will stay with them through college and beyond.

Build New Relationships
JTF teens participate in a team building day and then work in cohorts throughout the program to learn how to think philanthropically and maximize their impact - all while building new relationships and having great social opportunities.

Award Tens of Thousands of Dollars to Nonprofits
Program participants will have real responsibility to decide which organizations receive grants likely totaling over $20,000.

Exclusive Access to Influencers
Through the Jewish Community Foundation, JTF has access to business, non-profit, legal and other leaders who will inspire participants and help them understand the Jewish values of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam.
